Product Description
I like to study Shakespeare with all my classes, regardless of grade. For junior high, however, I always study a modified version - not quite modern, but definitely not Elizabethan. Even with these modified versions the language and the flow (and all the wonderful subtleties of Shakespeare) can be easy to miss for students, so it really helps to make them slow down and read it line by line until they REALLY get it. For this activity students are given the choice of several key soliloquies or monologues, which they must then translate into 'teen talk'. It's a great way to get them engaging with the language and excited about understanding it. I've had great success with this activity, adapted for several plays. Includes a monologue at the end which I do a sample translation of with the class (doesn't include my translation - I do it on the fly with my classes each time I teach it).
